This footage was taken from a fixed camera during the MIZ operations on board the SA Agulhas II on 4th July 2017 (between 10:00 and 13:00 GMT). The first minute shows the navigation through the interior of the pancake ice field. This period corresponds to the automatic sea ice measurements (Alberello et al., 2019) shown in Fig. 2b. The video also shows the deployment of 2 buoys on different floes about 30 m apart (from minute 1:10).
